HAVE YOU CHECKED THE FUEL PUMP OR FUEL FILTER? IF YOU HAD TO CHANGE INJECTORS, MAYBE THEY WERE CLOGGED WITH IMPURITIES GETTING PASS THE FILTER? I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU FIND THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM. LET ME KNOW PLEASE. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BOW-TIE.

1985 corvette, 64,000 miles. idles rough and sounds like it wants to die but doesn't; can watch rpm drop and come back. Just changed the egr valve too. What should I try next or look into?


Your problem can have multiple sources. Spark plugs, change those if they are old. Injectors can be dirty. There are injector cleaning products that you can try. The best I have seen is one that you inject the cleaning solution into the system via shrader valve at the fuel rail, disable the fuel pump and run the car only with the cleaning solution that is coming from a pressurized container.
At the same time change your fuel filter. If your distributor rotor cap and spark plug wires are old, replace those. There is an idle control air valve that regulates your idle. That could be a source of the problem also. Query the on board computer and see if you have any codes. My advice, start with the spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and fuel filter if they are old and go from there. That should be an easy task that does not demand a lot of skills. See if that helps.

1985 corvette wont start


NEVER use either!! EVER! It burns very dry and can destroy a gas engine! Just give it a bit of gas down the intake.But keep the can away after each try! Far away! Not sure how you are getting 32v?? That can't be volts! Silly question, but is there fuel in the tank?? Have seen this before! It would be great to learn how this all started?? [or should i say stopped] lol Check the fuel line for a pin hole. It sounds like it is sucking air. Really need a bit more info. OK Frankster016
